Further to the Companys news release of January 22, 2014 regarding the closing of the Companys sale of certain assets to Morro Bay Resources Ltd. (Morro Bay), the Company advises that it has today filed an early warning report in connection with the receipt by it of an aggregate 12,294,026 common shares (the Shares) and 6,147,013 share purchase warrants (Warrants) of Morro Bay. The Shares represent approximately 23.06% of Morro Bays current issued and outstanding share capital (53,309,950 common shares). The Shares and Warrants represent approximately 31.02% of Morro Bays issued and outstanding share capital assuming the exercise of such Warrants.
The Company advises it did not act jointly with any other party in acquiring the Shares and Warrants. As previously reported, the Shares and Warrants were acquired by the Company at the deemed price of $0.10 per unit, in consideration of Morro Bay acquiring all of the Companys rights to an option to earn up to a 65% interest in mining concessions in Mexico comprising the Peñoles Project owned by Riverside Resources Inc. and a drill rig that has been used on the Peñoles Project.
It is the Companys intention to distribute all of the Shares and Warrants to its shareholders by way of dividend-in-kind (except to Riverside Resources Inc., which received shares and warrants directly from the Company and which has waived its rights to participate in the Companys dividend distribution).
